Student Success Story
Submitted By: Riverside County Office of Education CTE
Martha was a single mother of two who needed to find a career that would allow her to support herself and her children.
Martha had several cousins who had gone through the Registered Dental Assistant program at Riverside County SCE and were now happy in their jobs, so she decided to enroll. The School of Career Education helped Martha apply for a scholarship that would pay for her coursework, and the flexible program times helped her juggle her responsibilities as a parent.
Part of the program includes an internship placement to gain work experience, and Martha was excited to be hired by her employer when her internship was complete. As for the RDA program, Martha shared, “I’d recommend it! I learned a lot and I really enjoyed going to class every day.”
